Review for Norwegian Spirit to Mediterranean

We really liked the ship, BUT it is in need of an up date. The cabin was rather poor. Only one bedside table, the other side had a standard lamp ? Very strange. Carpet was dirty and vanity table was broken The food was good, staff was lovely. BUT this ship is to small for the Atlantic and it was a very bumpy ride, with sea sick bags placed on very floor. We had a drinks package, BUT got ...

We had never sailed with NCL and saw this cruise from Barcelona which included a drinks package. Never had one of those either but we soon got into the swing of things, too much gin ! We stayed in Barcelona for 2 days prior to sailing and it was raing when we arrived, this set the tone of things for the whole holiday. We had two sunny days, Madeira and Malaga, the rest were cold and ...

This was a last minute booking due to family circumstances which in truth limited our choice of cruise. However, we have now cruised with NCL five times and since our first cruise with NCL 24 years ago we have noted a marked decline in standards and quality. This time my wife and I cruised with my brother and sister-in-law and both of them reflect our views on standards and quality. The reason we ...

We were looking for a holiday getaway and love NCL and this fit the bill. We really liked that they added a extra embarkation port in Malaga. There was no line, we just dropped off our bags and walked on. The ports of call were great with exception of Casablanca, if there is a need to go to Morocco I would much have preferred Agadir. This is an older mid sized ship that has been well maintained ...

We embarked in Malaga 2 days ahead of the main embarkation in Barcelona. We flew in with Ryan Air from Liverpool and arrived in Malaga at 11.15 am. We took a taxi to the port which cost 24 euros and we were at the port by 11.40 pm. We dropped our suitcases off outside and were given our stateroom number. As we had booked last minute we were guaranteed an inside cabin and that was all we knew! ...

We have taken cruises with NCL before, travelling twice on the Jade and once on the Star so we were looking forward to not only another cruise but a new ship. We had read good reviews about the Spirit on Cruise Critic as well. We boarded in Malaga (after enjoying 2 days there revisiting our old haunts as we used to live there) after taking a taxi which dropped us right at the entrance to the ...

Age 70s

This was our first cruise experience. Generally we enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and courteous and our Cabin Steward looked after us very well. For the most part we avoided Raffles - which was chaotic and noisy. The Windows restaurant was excellent and we also enjoyed the specialty restaurants. Shore excursion organisation was also very good. We had a Balcony Stateroom which we felt was ...

First of all - the positives. The cabin was clean and comfortable, although showing signs of wear. The cabin steward was friendly and helpful, as were all the staff. Our excursion to Casablanca was great, the highlight being the Hassan II mosque. At Funchal and Santa Cruz we did our own thing. Lanzarote was interesting, but the visit was hurried and uninspiring. Recommended: Look out for ...

Only our second cruise & must admit we'll cruise again. Booked this with a cruise travel agent: Flights from/to Malaga was with a low cost airline which was pleasent enough & arrived on time Transfer both ways via air conditioned taxis was good. Note" leaving the port at Malaga to return back to the airport, the taxi was booked too early & we had to stay at the airport for several hours prior ...
